We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
Up, Up And Away
Former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced that he would rocket into space next month on the first crewed mission of his company Blue Origins.
“Ever since I was five years old, I’ve dreamed of traveling to space,” Bezos said on Monday. “On July 20th, I will take that journey with my brother. The greatest adventure, with my best friend.”
Bezos and his brother Mark will be joined by the winner of a public auction that currently has a bid of $3.5 million for the seat. “I want to go on this flight because it’s the thing I’ve wanted to do all my life,” Bezos continued. “It’s an adventure. It’s a big deal for me.”
Blue Origin’s rocket ship New Shepard has flown over a dozen successfully unmanned flights, their first crewed journey will mark the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Supermodel Bella Hadid was razed by critics after she posted a 1939 photo of a soccer team she claimed was from Palestine, but a closer look revealed that all the players were Jewish and had the Star of David stitched on their uniforms.
“Bella Hadid uploaded a story on her Instagram showing a photo of a football team and saying Palestine versus Australia in 1939,” remarked Israeli Arab activist Yosef Haddad. “Now I’m not sure what she’s trying to say here, but, this team, all Jews, with even Hebrew writing on the jersey. This team wasn’t representing the “Palestinian state.” They were representing the British mandate.”
“The stupidity is astonishing,” commented another replier. “Does she actually not know or is she willfully lying?”

Comedian Katt Williams says cancel culture isn’t real, and comedians should get out of the business if they’re afraid of it.
“[People] weren’t all that extremely funny back when they could say whatever they wanted to say. At the end of the day, there’s no cancel culture. Cancellation doesn’t have its own culture,” Williams said on “The Joe Budden Podcast.” ”I don’t know what people got canceled that we wish we had back. Who are they? It’s done for the reasons it’s done for and it helped who it helped.”
He explained that it is comedians’ job to entertain and they should be able to do so while they’re censoring offensive language. “If all that’s going to happen is that we have to be more sensitive in the way that we talk, isn’t that what we want anyway? I’m saying, your job as a comedian is to please the most amount of people with your art,” he continued. “So if you wanna offend somebody, nobody took those words away from you… But don’t call somebody this word when you know it affects all of these people.”
He concluded that any stand-up comic that can’t work within those parameters should quit. “If these are the confines that keep you from doing the craft God put you to, then it probably ain’t for you,” Williams remarked. “Growth is part of being an adult.”
Not A Fight
Mariah Carey took to Twitter to dismiss rumors that her break-up with Jay-Z’s management company Roc Nation ended anything but amicably. Tabloids claimed that the two mega stars got into a heated confrontation about the future of Carey’s career, which led to her leaving the company, but the “Heartbreaker” singer set the record straight.
“The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker,’” she tweeted Monday along with a clip of Jay-Z’s 2001 hit “Izzo (H.O.V.A.).”
In conclusion, she wrote a line from the song. “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! —Vamoose, sonofa*****’!”
LeBron James is the most hated player in the NBA according to Twitter data. After proving to be a poor sport by walking off the court during the Playoffs and promoting violence against the police by tweeting “You’re next,” to the officer who shot an armed woman, the Lakers star was voted the 20-21 most hated player in 24 states.
Kyrie Irving came in second place, with 18 states, likely due to spreading conspiracy theories that the CIA killed Bob Marley and that the Earth is flat.
“For what I’ve known for many years and what I’ve been taught is that the Earth is round, but if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move and the fact that — can you really think of us rotating around the sun, and all planets align, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these ‘planets’ and stuff like this,” he commented on a podcast.
The Next Manning
The nephew of legendary NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning went viral for throwing a 50-yard touchdown pass while visiting Clemson’s football camp this weekend.
The sixteen-year-old high school junior is considered to be the most highly sought after recruit of the 2023 graduating class. He already has scholarship offers from Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Stanford and Texas.
